Daybook Time


FOR TODAY April 6, 2009...

Outside my window...Glorious, beautiful, warm sunshine!!! Yahoo!!!

I am thinking...about Easter, about the sacrifice that was made on my behalf so that I would not have to bear the eternal punishment for my sin but instead I am made clean. Amazing love! I can't begin to wrap my mind around this glorious thing!!!

I am thankful for..My Lord Jesus Christ - I am overwhelmed with the blessing of being in His family!!!!

From the learning rooms...Catching up - we missed a bit because our illness - it's going to be hard to stay inside today - maybe we won't :0)!!

From the kitchen...I've got to plan my menus - I'm just simply very behind with everything!!!

Verse for today...Philippians 2:8-9 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross. Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name!!

I am creating...my veggie garden. Still in the cleanup mode from winter's ravages. It was a hard winter for my yard!!!

I am going...Grocery shopping sometime today and shopping for all those last minute touches to make Easter special (frilly socks for Esther and Abbie etc.)

I am reading...Philippians and The Sword of Truth by Gilbert Morris

I am hoping...All the sickness leaves our house for good!!! We seem to be having a couple of relapses - which I have heard are just part of this bug - Yuck!!!

I am hearing...The dishwasher running - the kids quietly playing a hiding game.

Around the house...Everything - I am behind, behind, behind - I am feeling like I need to sterilize everything!

One of my favorite things...Clear mornings when it's warm enough to let in the fresh air first thing - the smell of clean Spring air!!!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Getting ready for Easter - we have a wonderful picnic with family after celebrating at church - this is a day filled with joy and delight we share with my family - it's so wonderful since my parents and siblings are all believers - we all are celebrating Resurrection together!!

Here is a picture I'm sharing: My bird feeder - it's empty because my children's kitty won't leave the birds alone. This was one of the first purchases my husband and I made together as a married couple. I love how the lichens and mosses have grown on the roof:

I am also way behind, I haven't planned my menu for this week, i need to go to the store, and the laundry...happy for you, that your family is on the mend.

Oh spring come my way, i am so tired of winter and cold and wind and snow... i long to sit in the sunshine...enjoy today.
I am afraid we are going to miss spring entirely, and get up one morning, and it will be summer and 100.

Yay for sunshine and wellness! I love how you embrace the lichen and moss. A true Northwesterner! One thing about being "behind".....I always say that it's a sign that life is happening in our house:)
